Parkes Shire Council manages water infrastructure for the Parkes/Peak Hill Water Supply System that supplies the towns of Parkes and Peak Hill, as well as the townships of Alectown and Cookamidgera.

Council also manages the water supply to the townships of Bogan Gate, Trundle, Tullamore and rural consumers in between. This system is known as the 'B' section pipeline, which carries water from Forbes. 

Council’s water charges have been developed in accordance with the State Government’s Best Practice Guidelines and Section 501 of the Local Government Act. You can download the Best Practice Pricing Policy here

Compliance with these Guidelines is an important criterion for eligibility for funding under The State Government’s Country Towns Water Program. An access charge will apply to all properties (including vacant land) within 225m of a Council water pipe, whether connected or not.

Residents and ratepayers who are required to operate a home dialysis machine in their principal place of residence are subject to a water usage concession. See Water Charges for Home Dialysis Policy for more information.
